The Manifesto suggested a course of action for a proletarian revolution to overthrow capitalism and, eventually, to bring about a classless...read more

    Ein faszinierender literarisch-philosophischer Text in einer künstlerischen Fassung, die beständig fragt, irritiert, herausfordert, nicht loslässt. 1848 erschien in London ein Text, der die Welt veränderte. Er wurde zum Ausgangspunkt ökonomischer Systeme, politischer Konflikte und nicht zuletzt einer Vielzahl von Missverständnissen, die bis heute das politische Bewusstsein prägen. Das von Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels verfasste Programm der Kommunistischen Partei ist als historisches Dokument einmalig und überrascht durch seine mitunter erschreckend weitsichtigen Analysen u. a. zur Ausbeutung der Arbeiter oder zur Globalisierung. Katharina Thalbach leiht in einer...read more

    No final de fevereiro de 1848, foi publicado em Londres um pequeno panfleto que acabaria por se tornar o documento político mais importante de todos os tempos: o Manifesto Comunista, de Karl Marx e Friedrich Engels. Passado mais de um século e meio, a atualidade e o vigor deste texto continuam reconhecidos por intelectuais das mais diversas correntes de pensamento. A Boitempo Editorial utilizou, com alguns ajustes ortográficos, a tradução feita por Álvaro Pina a partir da edição alemã de 1890, prefaciada e anotada por Engels. O cotejo foi feito de forma minuciosa com as principais edições inglesa, francesa e italiana, confrontadas com duas edições brasileiras anteriores. Além...read more

    'Die Arbeit ist Quelle alles Reichtums, sagen die politischen Ökonomen. (...) Sie ist aber noch unendlich viel mehr als dies: sie ist erste Grundbedingung menschlichen Lebens, sie hat den Menschen selbst geschaffen.' Diese Worte stehen gleich zu Beginn des packenden Fragments, in dem Engels einen wichtigen Aspekt der Evolutionstheorie analysiert: den Anteil der Arbeit, der bei der Entstehung des Menschen eine entscheidende Rolle spielt. Zunächst ist es der aufrechte Gang, der den Menschen vom Affen unterscheidet, und der die Hand frei werden läßt - nun kann sich der frühe Mensch erste Werkzeuge schaffen; dies und einige weitere Aspekte sind entscheidend für seine schnelle...read more

    The Communist Manifesto was conceived as an outline of the basic beliefs of the Communist movement. The authors believed that the European Powers were universally afraid of the nascent movement, and were condemning as "communist," people or activities that did not actually conform to what the Communists believed. This Manifesto, then, became a manual for their beliefs. In it we find Marx and Engel's rehearsal of the idea that Capital has stolen away the work of the artisan and peasant by building up factories to produce goods cheaply. The efficiency of Capital depends, then, on the wage laborers who staff the factories and how little they will accept in order to have work. This...read more

    The main idea of "Socialism: Utopian and Scientific" (1880) was distinguishing scientific socialism and utopian socialism. Engels begins by chronicaling the thought of utopian socialists, starting with Saint-Simon. He then proceeds to Fourier and Robert Owen. In chapter two, he summarizes dialectics, and then chronicles the thought from the ancient Greeks to Hegel. Chapter three summarizes dialectics in relation to economic and social struggles, essentially echoing the words of...read more

    The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels' revolutionary 1848 summons to the working classes, is one of the most influential political theories ever formulated. After four years of collaboration, the authors produced this incisive account of their idea of Communism, in which they envisage a society without classes, private property or a state. They argue that increasing exploitation of industrial workers will eventually lead to a revolution in which capitalism is overthrown. Their vision transformed the world irrevocably, and remains relevant as a depiction of global capitalism...read more

    Without question one of the most significant books in modern history, The Communist Manifesto is a brief, populist pamphlet that distils the core ideas of Communism into accessible prose. Published just months before violent uprisings threatened to destabilise much of the European establishment, it outlines a view of history as a constant battle between the classes that will inevitably result in revolution. An angry call for a stateless world where the workers are no longer exploited, its depiction of the remorseless nature of the remorseless nature of modern capitalism is as alarming and striking now as it was in...read more

    Diese Texte bieten die wunderbare Gelegenheit, deutsche Geschichte zu verstehen und zu begreifen: keine angestaubte Geschichtsstunde läuft hier ab, sondern ein brillanter Denker bringt hier die wichtigsten historischen Ereignisse mit viel Sprachwitz auf den Punkt. Bilderreich und einprägsam beginnen die Texte mit der einer geistvollen Beschreibung 'deutscher Zustände' zu der Zeit, als Deutschland in unzählige Fürstentümer zerfiel, und wie rückständig das 'Heilige Römische Reich Deutscher Nationen' im Gegensatz zu anderen Europäischen Staaten war. Lebendig wird erklärt, was dann die Französische Revolution und Napoleons Feldzug durch Europa bedeutet, schließlich, wie nach der...read more
